30 years ago, a Brazilian journalist wrote that in the 19th century the middle class read Balzac and Dickens and "now" it read biographies of the famous. I add that 30 years the middle class watches movies based on those biographies.

I don't think this movie is going to have much to do with "biography".

I think it's a safe bet that not one of the real people involved ever said a line of the dialogue in that trailer. And were comic books burned in the Forties?

Far from being burned, comics were collected as part of huge paper drives during the war. It is this that accounts for the scarcity of Golden Age issues.

(Paper drives were conceived by the government as a way of giving people a feeling of contrbuting directly to the war effort. Very littl of the paper collected actually went to practical use.)

JB: "I don't think this movie is going to have much to do with "biography"."


And the audience won't know and will take everything as true. Every scene, every line of dialogue, no matter how unlikely. They think they are learning something.
